Blonde hair and blue eyes…

I don’t know how anyone can resist these blonde hair & blue eyes.  Say hello to Saoirse Ronan Lawlor. His mom purchased a gift certificate from one of the local auctions so we just had to do some fun outdoor stuff. Saoirse loves the water and was more than delighted to have his photo taken down by the anchor on Alki. It was exceptionally hot that day so when I suggested he take his shoes off and run through the surf he didn’t hesitate!

Bunny Blast

I just got done photographing the Easter Bunny and all his best friends at the new Fred Meyer at Alderwood Mall. Sponsored by the City of Lynnwood this annual event provides complimentary photos to children of all ages!  Now..will the real Easter Bunny please step forward!

West Side Mops Spa Day a Success!

This was my first year participating in the West Side Mops annual Spa Day. The moms of West Seattle stopped by for 2 hours of pampering including hair, make up, massage, crafts, and wonderful mom portraits by “moi” gail ann!  We munched on bagels and cupcakes and enjoyed a chocolate fountain. Each  mom got a gift bag with goodies and many door prizes were given away.  I’m sure there was a lot of ‘action’ when the ladies got home to their husbands looking like dynamite!  Take a peek here at the day’s fun…Hope to see you all next year!

I had the opportunity to shoot stills for Jamican reggae artist Shan Coleman this past weekend.  Surrounded by makeup artists from MAC and models and actors from the area,  Producer  David Jofre expertly moved his subjects into position for the creating of Shan Coleman’s upcoming video “Night Still Young”.

Marley & Me

Who knew Marley would turn into a killer photographer when he got a pet cam for Christmas! I’ve been ‘processing’ his work and I must say, he takes after me.  Luna not so much but, she has gotten a great shot of Marley himself coming up the stairs. Their first book will be ‘published’ soon!  Click here to view their images!
